Tired of traipsing all over town and the Internet looking for a bra that will accommodate your cup size? Look no further. Bra*Tenders carries back sizes from 30 to 50 and cup sizes from AA to L, and they certainly don't look like something your grandmother would wear—just take a peek for yourself!
A full-busted babe herself, co-owner of Bra*Tenders Lori Kaplan, makes it her mission to give you an extreme makeover, without the pain. "I had a breast reduction, and that's how I developed this compassion for women who are very large breasted," says Lori. "I never had a bra that fit me properly, or one that looked nice."
When fitting a full-busted woman, she does three things: Elevates, contains, and supports. And boy, will you notice a difference! "Many full-busted women who leave the shop after a fitting often hug me, even cry and say I've changed their life, " says Lori. "They never knew they could look so good."
Believe it or not, the most common size Bra*Tenders sells is a 34F, though lately, 32 and 34G—even H cups—are close seconds. That's right, you're not alone. In fact, you're in good company. Many A-list celebrities who use the shop for theater, movie, and TV fittings have much bigger boobs than you think. They've got Lori's magic to thank for that.
Lori's only advice when making an appointment for a full-busted fitting? "Be realistic about your body type. A lot of women are in denial when I tell them they're an F cup when they think they're a D cup. They don't want to be an F cup. No one likes to hear they're a size bigger." Lori refuses to sell the wrong size bra to anyone. "I have my reputation to protect. In a world of clothing sizes that include zero, nobody should care about what the label says!" But have no worries: Lori and her professional fit staff will make you look like a star—and about 10 pounds thinner—in a New York minute!
